Note: if you are having trouble with Google Classroom syncing, try logging out completely of both and your Google account, then start the process over again in a fresh browser session. 

Step 1: Sign in with your Google or account

You will need to make sure you sign into your account through Google before you can sync with these providers.

To sign in with your Google Account, click on the “Sign in with Google account” option from the sign in page:


Note: If you currently sign in with an email and password, as long as the email address of your Google Account matches the email address for your account, you will be able to sign in with the Google Account option. If the emails do not match, you can go into your account settings and update your email address from there so it matches the email address of your Google Account. Then, sign back out and "Sign in with Google Account."


Step 2: Create a new section

Go to “My Dashboard” and click on the option to create a new section. This should pop up a dialog with an option to sync with either Google Classroom or Clever, depending on which provider you are using:


Step 3: [First-time only] Authorize to use Google Classroom

The first time you try syncing a section with Google Classroom, you will need to authorize to use Google Classroom. Click the link that says “Click here to authorize Google Classroom.”


You should get something like this:


Make sure you choose the email address that matches with the Google Account you are logged in with!

Hit “Allow” on the next dialog.

Step 4: Choose the section you want to import


Step 5: Fill out section details

Once you choose a section, you should see the dialog that lets you fill in your section details.  

Step 6: Hit “Save” to finish creating your section

Once you hit “Save” in the section details dialog, you’ll have finished creating your section with Google Classroom or Clever!


Please note that we strongly suggest choosing only one syncing option between Google Classroom and Clever - not both. Using both options can lead to duplicate accounts for students, which can lead to issues with seemingly lost progress because students have been using two accounts.


FAQ & Troubleshooting Tips

How do I re-sync my list of students?

If your Google Classroom or Clever roster gets updated, you can sync your list of students in by going to your section, clicking on the “Manage students” tab, and hitting the button to “Sync students from Google Classroom” or “Sync students from Clever.”

Why are a few of my students still missing when I sync my sections, or students that dropped are still appearing?

Make sure you are pulling and syncing from the correct and most up-to-date section from Google Classroom or Clever. Having several similarly-named (or identically-named) sections on Google Classroom or Clever can easily lead to confusion! You can check to see all the sections you have access to, by going to "create a section" from the front of your teacher dashboard, and then choosing Clever or Google Classroom which will then display a list of all sections you have on that 3rd party service. 

How can I move students in sections synced with Google Classroom or Clever?

You'll need to first move your students to the new section(s) within the Google Classroom side, and then you can re-sync your sections on the side to see the moves reflected there. The 'sync' button should be available in the Manage Students tab for any section that connects to Google Classroom or Clever, which will update any changes to the roster.

How should my students be signing in?

If your students are using Google Classroom, they should go to the sign in page and click on the option to “Sign in with Google Account" on the right side (not by typing their credentials on the left). 

If your students are using Clever, they should go to their Clever dashboard and click the logo.

What if I sign into my account with an email address and password, instead of my Google or Clever account? 

You can link your account to your Google or Clever login through your account settings page. Just follow the instructions here

What if I created a section without Google Classroom or Clever and now want to sync my section with one of these tools?

The best way to deal with this situation is to create a new section from scratch using the instructions outlined in this article. As long as your students were already signing in with their Google Accounts or Clever Accounts, they will get to keep using the same account in your new section. Therefore, their progress should not be lost.
If your students are not already logging in with their Google or Clever accounts, then the same response to the earlier Q&A ("What if I sign into my account with an email address...") applies.

I keep getting an error while trying to create a new section or sync an existing one. What do I do?

Most likely, your overall authentication from Google Classroom or Clever has expired, which happens often. Log out and back in to through the the "Sign in with Google" link for Google Classroom, and the Clever portal for Clever. 

How can my school or district admins set up admin accounts with or Clever / Google Classroom? 

We do not currently support admin-level accounts on or through integrations with any sign on service. We'd recommend admins create teacher accounts to have all possible permissions for viewing student progress.
